A 10-year-old girl has found a bag of the drug ‘speed’ in a playground in Downpatrick, County Down.

According to the PSNI the schoolgirl picked up the bag while playing in a park on Colmcille Road.

She handed the bag to an adult who took it to the police.

“We have tested it and it has been confirmed as amphetamine or more commonly known as SPEED,” said the post.

“It’s probably a parents worst nightmare for their child to find something like this, never mind where they thought was a place of safety.”
